Somewhat limited choices of places to work as a travel LVN/LPN, but this is to be expected as medicine is typically prejudice against working us. As long as I wanted to work state prisons, state psych facilities or State Supported Living Centers, things were great.
I do know of some issues with housing being bad, inadequate or just plain unacceptable, but, by and large, the less lovable the job, the more wonderful the housing. By wonderful, I mean vacation resort housing, OH YES!!! But, that was in exchange for working the state prisons.
I was terminated when I refused to return to work at the job where my charge nurse insisted I chart a seizure I did not witness, other than a few seconds (she witnessed the onset and did not have the brains to start timing it.....). When I asked if my office could guarantee my not working with that nurse, again, they were not able to assure me this could happen, so I broke my contract. Now, mind you, in the travel nurse world, the facility can break contract for any little reason, but the nurse does not have this luxury. So, I got fired from not only this situation, but from the company, which happens to be the main contender in Texas. If you can keep from breaking contract, and you have a high tolerance for working jobs nobody else wants, this place is for you. I loved my office staff, out of Ft. Worth TX.
Good money, see the country, short contracts=no boredom
Facilities can trump up a reason to break contract.
